I'm curious about how the Wiki editing guidelines decided upon, specifically with regards to naming of ramps
. Taking a random example from the Wiki: "Exit 24: Schwarzenegger Rd
" - it seems to me that the guidelines are optimised for navigation purposes, with strong emphasis on matching the signage.
There's a discussion over in the UK forum about our own guidelines for ramp naming
. Currently, we include the current road in the ramp name to aid traffic reports. So, using US road names and style, we might have something like this: "I-310 (S) Exit 24
The argument for why we do this is for the benefit traffic reports. So, I'm wondering why the US guidelines don't include this information. Is it not needed? Does the nearby city give enough information? Are ramps immune from traffic jams? How does this work with TTS?FWIW: I'm not trying to incite a flame war here, I'm just trying to understand.
